Kenny Cartwright seems to be nothing more than a human lab rat to his neighbor, Rich Peterson. Although the boys have a different definition of what it means to be “best friends,” Kenny is always a willing candidate to try Rich’s potentially dangerous ideas. One day, while exploring a hill in the woods, the two boys stumble across an alarming plan of attack, aimed directly at them. Regardless of their differences, Kenny and Rich must work out the true meaning of friendship. The only way the two can survive is to unify—their lives depend on it. Their usually laid back summer will quickly turn disastrous if the two don’t work together. Their once quiet town won’t be safe again until the boys figure out their enemy’s master plan. Do they wave the white flag and give up? Or do the boys prepare for war? There are big decisions to be made for Kenny and Rich. The clock is ticking.

4th and 5th grade students loved reading KCC, so did I. Each chapter starts with a famous quote leading into a short story, which makes the book an easy read especially for reluctant readers. All of the students, girls and boys alike were enthralled by Rich’s fun attitude, ideas and quick wit. At times I could hear students laughing as they read! They were eager to read the next adventure. This is a great read! I highly recommend it for every one. Adults too!

I live in a small New England town and could picture all of this happening. I laughed out loud reading it to my granddaughter.

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. Although it is a book for elementary and middle school kids, I enjoyed it immensely as an adult.
